China Glaze Camisole Nail Polish
My mom is also into nail polish, but neutral colors only. That, as well as french tips, and the occasional black. She used to just choose among the polishes available at the salon when she gets her nails done, but now that I’ve gotten into nail polishes and have been showing her my recent buys, she’s been branching out to other brands and finishes. One day she showed me her new bottle of China Glaze Camisole.
Camisole is part of China Glaze’s core line of colors.
Unlike my mother, neutrals aren’t my favorite shades of nail polish. I like color. I like shimmer and glitter. So it was some time before I tried China Glaze Camisole on my nails. Camisole to my eyes is a light, pale brown color with tones of rose-gold. In direct sunlight, it leans towards being a light peach, while in dimmer, cooler lighting, it looks slightly taupe. I had a lace-silk nightgown that I wore all the time when I was pregnant and it was in almost the same color as this, I find the polish name quite appropriate.
Camisole contains fine shimmer, which in person I barely notice, but in zoomed in photos, the shimmers in it look green, silver, and pink. It has a lightly frosted finish. I steer clear of frosts most of the time because I don’t find the finish flattering on me, but this is only lightly frosted. It’s like a pearlescent to light frost finish. I think it looks subtle, clean and pretty.
I find that one thickish layer of this is enough because it’s opaque enough. One thing I don’t like about it is how the brush strokes become very obvious if I’m not careful with application. The formula is a little thicker than I’d like, but I can work with it. This polish is big 3 free (Toulene, DBP, and Formaldehyde) from what I know. My mom bought it at a PCX branch for around PhP 350.
- The color is subtle but interesting and pretty.
- Only takes a few minutes to dry.
- It’s big 3 free.
- It’s very accessible—it’s part of the core line so I don’t have to worry about it being out of stock, and it’s available at most PCX stores and department stores.
China Glaze Camisole Nail Polish – What I don’t like:
- The finish makes brush strokes quite obvious if I’m not very careful with application.
China Glaze Camisole is a pretty neutral, I like the lightness of its color and I don’t find it boring, like I used to find most neutrals. I think I actually needed a break from all the dark, glittery, and colorful hues of polishes I’ve been wearing lately, and Camisole makes for a nice, refreshing change. In fact I find myself wanting more neutral colors of polish, which I’ll probably wear more of this summer when I get tired of brights, glitters, and shimmers.
